Reviews

...from two young fans, both reluctant readers:

'I love comics and 'A Roman Rescue' is like a really good comic. It's very exciting and funny. I love how Bandit's always getting up to mischief, but best of all, I think Charlie looks a bit like me.'
Marcus, age 9

"I think "A Roman Rescue" is very good. The pictures carry you along and I couldn't stop reading it. It's really exciting and it made me laugh. Bandit is just like my dog, Bart."
Conrad, age 9
